Abstract (Summary)

The periods of pre-school to high school are the main growth time. To investigate the influence of glucose control on the longitudinal growth and weight development of children and youth with type 1 diabetes mellitus (DM). Retrospective measurements of study height and weight were recorded in 127 children and youth with prepubertal onset of type 1 diabetic children between 4 to 15 years old in Taiwan was concerned. The ratio of males and females was about one to two (38:80) exclude those criteria's were not matched. Data collection included times of ketoacidosis, blood sugar level, and glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) value in order to assess clinical and metabolic control. The average heights were no significant difference in girls and boys. There was no statistic difference of normal linear growth in girls and boys. There was also no significant correlation between metabolic control and linear growth in either girls or boys. Linear growth and near-final height in children with type 1 DM compared favorably with the general population. Although there was some evidence of suboptimal growth spurt in girls and boys, the final height was no significant correlation with their metabolic control.
